Item #: 2064CS654
Upgrading the old factory speakers in your car will give you a huge bump in sound quality, and Kicker designed CS Series speakers to get your sound system rockin' without breaking the bank. You'll enjoy your music even more when you hear all the details that your muddy-sounding factory speakers couldn't begin to reproduce.
Kicker's 40CS654 speaker set provides low-end from a tough 6-1/2" polypropylene woofer, with a polyester foam surround that will stay strong for years to come. The 1/2" PEI balanced dome tweeter takes care of the vocal and instrumental details that'll really bring your music to life. These speakers sound great powered by a factory radio or an aftermarket car stereo, and they'll really rock when connected to an external amplifier. Grilles are included.
Great speakers, great price!!!

Great speakers, great price!!!
Fits excellent with the bracket provided with your order. Great BANG for your BUCK! I love ordering from Crutchfield. They make installations easy with detailed instructions and comes with brackets and wiring to make installation a breeze. The speaker is awesome.
Pros: Fits excellent with the bracket. Great BANG for your BUCK!
Cons: Nothing at the moment.
They sound 5x better then what was being used !!
Pros: Easy installation !!
Cons: None yet
So far so good. Install needed minor mods to the plastic install bracket. The front side needed a mod to the OEM bracket. The sound is much better than stock. The stereo has not been replaced yet but that is next. The bass of these speakers is good. It adds that needed sound. I would buy them again.
Pros: Kicking bass
Cons: not a perfect fit but very minor mods
Just installed these into my Honda Civic and they sound absolutely amazing
Great upgrade from factory speakers, tighter bass, and cleaner sound.
Sound great, and were easy to install
Speckers sound clean and bass hits nice
Speakers very easy to install and they sound great.
Pros: Great improvement over stock speakers
Well worth it. I actually happy to say it was well worth getting Kicker speakers because they live up to their reputation. The installation was easy for my 2000 Honda Accord EX.
Pros: Great sound quality for its size
Cons: I wish they had more base
Great product, Super fast shipping, Thanks
Pros: Excellent with all extra hardware included
Was a great improvement over stock speakers. Great help from tech to assure the best speaker for the truck and stereo.
I bought these for my 2006 Chevy Express full sized van and they are awesome. After upgrading my headunit to a Pioneer Bluetooth enabled unit the stock speakers always rattled. These solved the problem and have a much wider response. Also, they bolted right in without the need of adapters. I literally swapped both front door speakers in less than 30 minutes. I found an online video on how to remove the door panels which was pretty easy.
I am very happy with everything. The speakers were an upgrade from factory speakers. What an improvement! They were easy to install after looking at the information Crutchfield sent me. The free speaker mounting adapter made mounting the speakers a snap. One reviewer said the screws were too long and he was right. I cut them off and they worked great. After all, they came with the speakers, not the adapter! I looked at a you tube video on how to remove my door panel but it was not right. The information Crutchfield sent was right in every way! Some reviewers said there was not much bass, but it was at least as good if not better. The highs were much better. I wish I had don't this a long time ago! I will do business with Crutchfield again, they make it easy.
Pros: easy, improved sound.
very good fit was good. and the sound is very good.
Pros: easy fit, sound.
These speakers sound great, and are perfect for a budget minded upgrade over stock.
Pros: Good sound, fair price.
Cons: Adapter bracket ( supplied by Crutchfield ) required modification.
quality speaker that outperforms factory system
Pros: easy install and all is included in box at no extra cost
Cons: didn't need speaker covers so I just tossed them
Great mid-range and highs. Also a big improvement in lows over stock speakers in the Honda. Very pleased with the purchase overall, and recommend as a great bang for the buck in a lower cost door speaker.
Installed easily and sounds great
Pros: Getting all the installation gear needed to install
The new upgraded speakers are amazing. Didn't know how bad factory installed speakers were until I put the kickers in.
Pros: The new upgraded speakers are amazing. Didn't know how bad factory installed speakers were until I put the Kickers in.
Cons: The only con was the glue on the old speakers. It was hard to remove from the plastic bracket. With perseverance I got it accomplished and the help of the one 800-number.
Excellent Product... What you would expect from Kicker
Pros: Easy install .... Great sound ... Awesome upgrade from stock speakers ..
I was looking to just replace factory speakers, these do just fine with my after market HU. Bought another set to go in rear doors, that about rounds out the mids, just have to add my subs now. Other than that sound decent for their price, nothing fancy.
Pros: Price, sound decent after broke in. Probably sound even better amped.
Cons: Gotta have the fingers of a five year old to connect adapter wires to the speakers.
They sound great and went in like a dream.
Like most people just wanted an upgrade from stock speakers and that what I have. better sound quality but lose a little bass compare to the stock 6x9.
Nice sound clarity from the new speakers also a pretty significant increase in sound.
Pros: Nice price, and so far seems to be a significant upgrade!!
The speakers are great. They produce more defined sounds. Speaker quality is awesome.
Pros: Great sound quality.
Cons: ?? don't think there're any.
Fit and install was easy, it handles the factory power with ease, clean highs, punchy mid-high bass but like others, the cheap almost no magnet factory speaker had more low end bass. 4 of these to replace factory for mids and highs would be fine but then your going to need a sub woofer to replace the bass. Note: same speaker in 2 different vehicles gave a completely different bass response. car was poor and truck was great. it might be the head unit and other factors that gave this install a bad bass response.
Pros: Cheap, easy install, well built and will prob outlast the car.
Cons: No low bass
Just installed these in my 2000 GMC Sierra 1500. They fit perfect and have great sound, especially some good bass. I compared these to other 6.5's in a big box store, and for the price, these were best. The only mod I had to make was the mounting screws provided were way too long. They kept me from being able to snap in the bracket. Luckily I had some extra smaller screws sitting around that I could use.
Cons: Not 3-way
A couple of my factory speakers were blown so I tried these. Easy to install and sound much better. Nice upgrade for the $$$. Planning to buy two more to finish the job soon.
Pros: Good sound Great price
Cons: Low on bass, but I suspect that it is due to low output from factory head unit.
These arrived quickly and installed easily. They are a nice upgrade over stock, but nothing too amazing. As other reviewers mention, the bass isn't great with these. Overall they are solid and I would recommend them if you're looking for an affordable upgrade.
Pros: Price, they look and feel well made, easy to install, sound quality
Cons: The bass isn't great
Great speakers overall went in nice and easy and sound great with a stock radio and tweeters. Can't wait to upgrade other items to make them sound even better.
Pros: Easy to install Sound great
Great sound so far...
Perfect fit and sound louder and clearer than the factory Infinity speakers that came in my Jeep.
Pros: Perfect fit. Easy plug and play. Sound louder and clearer than the factory speakers.
Ok, let me start by saying that this is not a high end speaker. Now let me continue by saying that it is a pretty good speaker, in fact, one that offers something that many (most) 6.5" high end speakers don't offer---acceptable mid-bass. I've read lots of reviews. Everyone gushes over the Focals and JLs adding that they will be fine when a sub is added (which it will, at this level of audio). Enter the Kicker CS coaxial speaker. It is a little powerhouse capable of filling out the mid-bass of non-subwoofer systems so they sound pretty darn good. I even read a Crutchfield review of the JL Evolution series speaker that noted the bass was a little weak but rescued by the Kicker CS in the rear doors. Having read this, and having heard the CS compared with the KS and other brands locally, my ears told me that this speaker somehow offers something special that the higher end speakers are not. Right off the bat it plays lower frequencies (down to 35 or 40 Hz) with a rigid cone that produces a tighter, more aggressive bass response. Its tweeters are bright, easy to distinguish above the bass, which is perfect for coaxials in the rear doors, but maybe a bit too bright to have blasting from the dash (in the CSS component speakers)...but it does the mid-bass so nicely that I am considering it for the front. VERDICT - The CS should be the first in a new class of speaker that I will call the "Mid-Sub Rear Door (MSRD)" speaker. No other speaker does what it does.
Pros: Durable quality construction, tight sound, probably the best mid-bass in its class
Cons: tweeters a tad bright for the silk-dome crowd
I replaced 2 out of 4 speakers on my Jeep XJ after one not working upfront...it was the wire that was bad but for this price i wanted to try two new ones....one on drivers side front and one on the rear...i know i know i should all match, but after doing some trials, they all sounded the same...i cannot tell which is stock or Kicker now...so i left the two stock ones alone...
Pros: Probably last longer that the stokers as seems good quality, easy fit...matches stock location on my 2000 Jeep XJ
Cons: Not any better than the 2000 jeep speakers....
Wire terminals are close to the magnet which makes sliding speaker connectors on annoying. Sound quality is good. Overall happy.
I used these to replace the factory speakers in my Honda Accord and I couldn't be happier. They really bring out the mids and highs, although they're a little lacking on bass - to be expected from speakers this size. I will say that the bass they do produce is very clean with no distortion or humming that you typically get from cheaper speakers. As always, Crutchfield is on point with their installation materials and instructions, install went as smoothly as possible. I'd highly recommend these for anyone looking to build a sound system, they're a huge upgrade over most factory speakers, and will really shine when paired with subwoofers.
Pros: Great clarity on the highs and mids
Cons: Lacking on the low end, but the bass they do produce sounds very clean
I have been looking for replacement speakers for my 2003 Escalade for sometime now. The Bose factory system sounded really good, but the speakers were 1-way and they were 13 years old so it was time to replace them. These kicker CS series were perfect because I do a lot of studio mixing and mastering, and every sound engineer knows that you need a great reference system to compare your mixes to. I highly recommend the speakers if you are looking for a balanced frequency response across the audible spectrum!
Pros: Awesome design, excellent frequency response, ample power handling capacity
These speakers sound great.
Pros: Sound great Fit in my factory speaker location
Cons: The connections are hard to get to with big hands
I put these speakers in all 4 doors of a 2006 CR-V along with an Alpine head unit (Alpine CDE-152) and the inline Alpine 45X4 RMS amp (Alpine KTP-445A Power Pack) which fit in the dash behind the head unit. Highs are crisp and clean, as much as they can be as coax's behind door panels. However, when you turn on the "Bass Engine" on the head unit, you would swear there is a small sub hiding somewhere in the car. Very pleased with the overall package.
Plug and play. This speaker pair and adapter along with the mounting ring, fitment recommendation, and instructions I bought from Crutchfield made my door panel speaker replacement a walk in the park. I'm very happy with the results.
Good upgrade from the factory speakers
Pros: Louder, more clear, and better than factory.
Replaced stock speakers in 2010 Honda Fit. Sound Great! Fit perfect!
I put them in my 2012 Camry Se in the Front Door. Immediately noticeable improvement. Sounds much nicer and clearer, been able to hear details in my music that i've never noticed.
Pros: Mid's and highs are pretty clear, it gives a nice full sound.
Cons: Bass is a little weak. I have to adjust my to increase the bass.
Super fast delivery, easy to install with directions that were included my truck sounds way better, cant wait to get my head unit next so they can really thump.
Pros: Easy to install, nice looking, sound great, good brand good price, excellent reviews.
Cons: None that i could think of.
sounds amazing, much louder than my factory speakers and the have great quality
Awesome sound, awesome price
Pros: Great sound
These speakers for the price are fantastic. Clear quality sound. The bass is not going to blow you away but it is perfect for me. So it depends on personal preference.
Pros: Sound quality Price
Ordered 2-pairs of these to replace the stock speakers in my '12 Silverado Crew Cab. I had been noticing that the stock speakers needed more volume to hear clearly as time went on. The installation was fairly simple, took between 2-3 hours to replace all four door speakers. It helped having the adapters and wiring harnesses included as they probably saved an hour over soldering and prepping the old speaker frames to accept the new Kickers. About the sound - these kickers are clearer and louder than stock by a pretty wide margin. I ran two of these in the back doors so I could compare against the stock speakers in the front doors and one thing really stood out - the bass. These Kickers don't have the deep, muddy bass that the stock speakers have. But the mid and high-range clarity that you gain in it's place makes up for it and that's what I really needed so that I could hear my music over the road noise. Crutchfield was great - quick, free shipping and lots of extras (plus instructions.) Nice deal. But I did order scratch and dents and one speaker cone was cracked. Sealed it up with some clear nail polish and it seems fine that way.
Pros: Clarity, mid-range and dB sensitivity.
Cons: A little short on the bass side.
They were what I was looking for an upgrade from stock without breaking the bank
Great speakers and easy installation
2009 Dodge Ram, front door speaker upgrade from factory. Best buy I found for these speakers, especially since they included the adapter plates and plugs. Significantly clearer sound and very easy to install.
Pros: Included instructions and hardware made installation a breeze.
Cons: Makes me eager to upgrade the rest of the speakers.
Worked and installed quickly thanks to the included adapter plate and harnesses. No complaints.
Pros: Price, installation and sound
Very easy installment and they sound amazing, much louder than my factory speakers and the have good quality
Pros: Sound good easy installment
Cons: They were different shape than factory so had to use bracket
Great Speakers. Installed a set to replace the factory ones in the roll bar of my 2012 JKU. Installation was quick and the sound quality is fantastic. Would recommend these to anyone looking to get more sound out of their system.
I drive a 2007 GMC Sierra, the stock speakers were shot so I installed these paired with the Kicker KST204 Tweeters. I have nothing bad to say about these, these are great and perform well. The mid and upper range is great and several people have asked what type of subs I have when I turn the bass up...I don't have any, just these speakers! Great buy and excellent quality for the price! Definitely recommend!!!
Pros: Maintain quality sound at high volumes. Excellent bass Price
Fair price. Sounds good.
Good replacement for the factory speakers which had all disintegrated. Easy install, good fit, good sound and good price. Had all 4 door speakers and the sub-woofer replaced in under 2 hours.
Pros: Economical, good sound, good fit, minimal install time.
Cons: You don't need the mounting brackets that come free with the speakers. The rear speakers just screw right into the old mounting holes.
Using everything that Crutchfield recommended made this install... under an hour...gotta give Chevrolet credit... removing door panels and even the interior panels were a piece of cake. Now, the sound... Chevrolet... you need to install at least these Kickers... so much better! Wife is happy! :)
Pros: Easy install. Much improved sound.
Cons: Honestly, the only negative... the wife likes the OEM radio... if only she'd let me replace it! Lol
Crisp clean sound. It a huge upgrade from factory.
Pros: Fits perfectly, sounds great
Cons: Absolutely none
I bought these speakers to replace stock speakers for a 2004 Gmc 2500 van. The installation was super easy with the wiring kit from Crutchfield. It took me about 30 minutes to install these speakers with no prior experience. I would highly recommend these speakers as an upgrade from factory speakers. The only downside to these speakers is a lack of base.
Pros: Easy install Good sound
Cons: Lack of base
Easy to install. Great sound. Great choice for mt Dodge Ram 1590
Pros: Inexpensive great sound
Speakers arrived on time. Easy to install instructions provided with speakers. Sound great.
Pros: Sound Great, Easy install
These speakers sounded great. I had a terrible HU but they did their very best to pump out decent sound at a great price. Unfortunately, one of the speakers made it less than a year before blowing, bummer... But, luckily they came with a one year warranty and I'm sure they'll be replaced by the end of next week. Build quality looked legit, just didn't hold up for me.
Pros: Price, Sound
Cons: Speaker blew after less than a year after being run very gently on a low-output system.
theyre in my 02 civic coupe, front doors. replaced fosgate primes with these. the original speakers from Honda were basically nothing. I actually laughed when I compared the 2. obviously a 6.5 wont give you much bass, but overall these are great. paired with the alpine spr-69 in the rear deck, the combo is fantasic
Pros: quality, sound
Awesome speakers door and trunk speakers installed today amazing sound very impressed with kicker products running off my pioneer 8 inch touchscreen
Sounds amazing in my 2005 Tundra
Pros: Great sound, easy to install. Love Kicker and Crutchfield
Cons: Price. Sound quality
So first off I just want to say that these speakers sound amazing, I am running them on my alpine head unit and nothing more and they give out clear sound all around and booming bass when I want it. I installed these in all 4 doors on my Toyota Tundra double cab (even though according to crutchfield they wouldn't fit in the front doors). It did take a little monkeying with the bracket to make it fit in the front (I believe if I had ordered the 6 3/4" size it would've fit in a lot easier) but in all it was a very easy install and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who cares about the sound in their car/truck.
Pros: Good sound, powerful bass
Cons: Crutchfield was misinformed about the compatability of these speakers with my truck.
Speakers are crisp and clear. Great highs and lows.
Pros: Sounds great, and fits in stock location.
Excellent sound - huge improvement over OEM speakers (even with OEM in-dash head unit outputs)! A little adventure adapting them to the cutouts in my 2013 Veloster (cutouts were larger than the speakers, and recommended adapters didn't help much), but in the final analysis I am very pleased and would definitely recommend them.
Pros: Excellent full range sound; efficient enough to use with OEM head unit - external amplifier not needed
I replaced my stock Jeep wrangler rear speakers with these. I honestly can't tell the difference in volume, distortion, or frequency response.....
Pros: None I can think of.
Cons: They cost money. The stock ones were included with the Jeep.
Speakers fit nicely and sound better.
Pros: Different kind of material, that should last better.
Cons: Tweeter and main speaker together, rather than being separate.
I Installed these speakers in my 2014 new body style Nissan rouge. DO NOT INSTALL BAFFLE ACCESSORY THAT IS SOLD SEPARATELY. It kills the sound. After I removed baffles these Sounded a lot better than factory. Awesome speaker.
Installed these innthe rear doors of a 2006 Dodge Ram. Sound way better than stock speakers, highs and mids are much clearer. Running off od new Kenwood deck. Installation was easy, but had to locate new mounting holes, just used self tapping screws and wasn't an issue.
Adequate speaker. Nothing to write home about, but it does the job expected for a reasonable price.
Purchased these speakers hoping to upgrade the sound of my factory sound system in my 2015 Honda Accord. After installing, it's safe to say that the factory system put out wayyy more sound than these. Possibly because factory radio is under powered for the speakers, not sure. Regardless, I would have been better off leaving everything factory.
Pros: Nice highs, look good
Cons: Low sound, low powered mids, overall disappointed by the sound.
I upgraded my Chevy Silverado to these speakers and the transition was insane. Unbelievable crispness and true sound. The tools that crutchfield provided made the process 100xs easier than if I had tried it myself.
Pros: Crutchfield tools matched factory perfectly. Sound was amazing for speakers at any price.
Cons: Nothing I can think of.
Only had them for a week but LOVE how they sound. My truck had the original speakers from 1995 so of course these are a huge boost but the sound is crisp and clear. I use the dynamic setting on my jvc deck and I couldn't be more pleased with the sound!
Pros: Price, sound quality
The speakers definitely do what they are designed to do. They are a small cone size to begin with so don't expect amazing mid-range punch. However, the woofer working with the integrated tweeter produces an overall very good sound quality in the mid-high range. Excellent clarity and very crisp sound. I installed these to replace factory BOSE speakers in a cadillac SRX. So even over a premium factory sound system it was an improvement. And these things are cheap too so its a win win. I am very satisfied. My only disappointment with the product is that it did not come with a Kicker sticker which I think looks really cool.
Pros: Ease of installation Price Sound quality
Excellent for the price!
Ordering was easy, received what I ordered quickly. These speakers replaced factory speakers in a 2015 Nissan Altima. They were extremely easy to install with supplied brackets and the sound is excellent with the factory head unit. I now have 6 of these in the car( front doors, rear doors and rear deck). You can't beat these speakers for the price.
Pros: Sound great, comes with everything you need to install, great price
Cons: none at this time
Great sound. Installed just as advertised
Pros: Fit well. Easy installation with wiring
Amazing sound and quality. Huge upgrade from my stock speakers and got them at such a good price. You can't go wrong giving these a try especially for the price paid. You will not be disappointed
Awesome upgrade from stoke speakers. My wife bought me a Pioneer head unit for Christmas and I added these as well as the 5.25 for the rear. Great speakers for an ever better price.
great sound for price
Pros: sound and price
Fast delivery. awesome speakers. They really made me realize what i was missing by just have my factory speakers this whole time.
Very well made and sound very good!
Great product and great price
Cons: None Yet
Really easy to install and sound much better than the factory speakers.
Good sound for the price.
Awesome replacement speakers compared to the factory speakers. I just replaced my Honda Civic factory speakers with this and I am glad I did. The sound is great and they provide more bass, yes, more bass than the factory ones. Thank you Kicker, you kick some bass.
Pros: Great sound and bass.
Cons: Could not find one.
Replaced front and back speakers in son's 2000 Jetta. Original speakers rotted out and dire need of replacement. Took less than an hour to do change. Fit was great and sound restored to radio.
Pros: Ease of installation and sounds great for the money
Cons: So far none
These speakers installed easily in my 2007 Chevy Trailblazer. The sounds is great and the price was very reasonable.
Pros: Good sound , good price, easy installation
Cons: None that I can think of right now.
I bought these to replace all of my failed factory speakers in an 08 trailblazer. They were easy to install and the sound quality has drastically improved! Can't beat the price either and top it off with 2 day shipping. What more could I ask for?
Pros: Easy to install, good sound
Cons: None yet
I bought two pairs of these speakers for my daughter's car when one of the front speakers start rattling. I replaced the front speakers immediately and noticed they didn't have nearly the bass as the original factory speakers. I was a little disappointed at first because there was way too much ear-piercing treble. I adjusted the EQ to where it was tolerable. But that's not where the story ends. The factory unit only put out about 8 to 10 watts per channel. For a graduation gift I decided I would install a premium stereo in her car, two pairs of these Kickers, along with a sub and amp. I installed a Pioneer 80PRS head unit, these speakers, a 12" Digital Designs sub, and a 5-channel JBL amp pushing 75 WPC on these, and 350 watts on the sub. After installing the HU and amp these speakers came to life! They sound absolutely amazing! As clear as can be in 60 hertz range and up. These speakers can handle power flawlessly, and sound extremely good doing it. The point is, if your just replacing factory speakers, these speakers may or may not be what your looking for. If your looking to add to your stereo later, these speakers will most definitely fit the bill. With the low power that most factory units put out these won't "wow" you, but if you add a little power they will.
Pros: Clean sound, good staging, and excellent power handling.
Cons: Don't really sound very good with a low wattage head unit.
I bought these speakers to replace the factory front door speakers on my 2008 Trailblazer SS Bose with Nav. I installed the the drivers side speaker, then tested it. The passenger, factory speaker was much louder at a given volume, and the sound was much better. Called Crutchfield support was told that Bose has some kind of crossover filter that blocks high frequencies, preventing the Kicker (2-way) speaker from getting the full range of sound. Also, the Kicker speaker requires much more power than the factory speaker, so at any volume the factory speaker sounded louder. I bought both the front and rear Kickers, but was told by the sales person not to replace the factory tweeters in the dash. Because the kicker speaker takes more power, the tweeter is blasting you out when you turn up the volume. Bottom line, these speaker would not work with the rest of my factory components. The sales person should have known that, and directed me to other products. I returned them.
Cons: Couldn't say anything good, sounded terrible in my car
A replacement to my stock speakers on a 2015 Corolla. Sound quality is clear and crisp. Provides a decent amount of bass without having an amp. A quality upgrade to my after market head unit. Great all around sound.
Pros: Clear. Powerful. Inexpensive. Easy to self install. Excellent buy.
Sounds real good. They have a nice clear tone to them. A whole lot better than the stock speakers
Pros: Easy to install.
After doing the research I decided to order speakers from Crutchfield rather than get the same kickers from an ebay source, because I thought the extra accessories would be helpful, and they were. The package arrived literally the next afternoon, less than 48 hours. I bought the foam speaker enclosures and cut an inch diameter hole in the back of them for the wire to go through and "breathing" air for the speaker. When clamping the foam into the OEM replacement plastic clip-ons it's a tight fit but the idea is to not have something in the door buzz... which would drive me crazy. Others have discussed the bass response as lacking but I found the bass from my stock head unit set to "jazz" was more distinct, not louder but "better" than the OEM speakers. Which were both broken lol. Look at your OEM speaker, it weighs half of what these kickers weigh, with cheap paper cone and flimsy foam surround, it's a wonder they lasted this long. Now it sounds like I'm standing next to a drum kit when Phil hits the toms. I only replaced the door speakers, and now due to some serious turning up the volume the back door speakers are crackling and I'll probably have to replace those also since they are ruining the sound from the new speakers.
Pros: Installing the speaker is easier than removing the door panel.
Cons: The instructions were a little lacking, but I figured it out intuitively. At first it appeared there were no screws to attach the speaker to the supplied plastic snap-in bezel. I bought some nuts and bolts from the hardware store, then discovered the screws were in the plastic wrap of the second speaker I had not completely unwrapped yet. For this installation you don't use the grill cover that comes with the speaker.
Nice sounding speaker, replaced worn out factory speakers. Installed in 09 Tahoe rear doors with factory radio.
Pros: Under $50 a pair (what I paid),
They sound great. I am only moving them with the stock radio. The were installed in a Yamaha Side X Side. I was in doubt to use an external amp, but so far not needed.
Pros: Great for the price.
Cons: nothing so far.
Clear sound.. Very nice mid-range to high speaker for a budget. Will operate well running directly from head unit or through a cross-over / eq.
Pros: Crisp sound, ease of install, Kicker is always a quality product. Built to last. Perfect fit
Cons: NONE... I've never had a problem w/ Kicker
Perfect upgrade for my '13 Subaru WRX with the factory head unit. Stock speakers were pretty weak with any kind of volume. These speakers are perfect! I know stock decks don't push that much power but they are great! Very easy install with everything Crutchfield supplies.
Pros: Deep, powerful sound even on a stock deck. Also for a great price!
easy to install and sound much better than the factory speakers in my 2013 Chevy Cruze.
Sounds great , fit perfect
Pros: Anyone can install them
Would be 5 star if the installation screws were correct. Received screws made for wood so they didn't fit right with the other parts to secure it. They had weak "fasteners" that broke almost instantly. Had to screw it into wood blocks to secure them. Kinda disappointed with this but Hey, speakers work awesome. Just glad I had help installing them otherwise I'd be returning them.
I ordered these as replacement speakers for my old work truck that had factory speakers. The sound is outstanding for the price of the speakers and Crutchfield delivered them quickly. These were installed in the front doors of 97 full size Chevy and my head unit is a low end JVC. Very clean sound.
Pros: Price, value, great upgrade from factory speakers. Clean size
Cons: Don't kick out a ton of bass, but that has more to do with the speaker size.
Sounds great, everything fit into the Colorado perfect Thanks again for quick delivery for my sons Christmas gift.
I decided to try to replace the old cracked speakers in my 2002 Tahoe myself after getting a bid for $850 from a local shop. I'm not very handy and figured I'd end up taking a big mess to an installer to finish after attempting to do it myself. These Kicker speakers fit perfectly without any retrofitting and sound fantastic. The only challenging part was removing all the interior panels necessary to access the speakers. Crutchfield's instructions were very specific and made it doable. Even for me. Installing 4 speakers and a subwoofer took me about 5 hours but I did it and it sounds vastly better than the factory speakers ever did.
Pros: Fit perfectly and easily with no drilling, cutting or retrofitting. Just screwed and plugged right in. Sound fantastic. Great directions.
Cons: No cons
I bought for my daughters car for Christmas, A 1996 Saturn SL2, I installed rear deck with ease. They sound good enough for her stock CD player with 3 band EQ. Rear wire's were vibrating so bad. Few zip tie's and shoe glue helped out.
Pros: Was very easy to install., very fast shipping three day service. wire harness and speaker adapters free.
Cons: For me not enough bass, I'll be getting for my Infinity QX4 with a kicker amp that'll pump 125W each channel. This should do it.
These speakers kick butt. I wanted great all around sound and also deep bass without subs bc I didn't want to be turning heads a mile away. ??
Pros: Sound great especially for the price
Replaced factory damaged speakers. Very good service and speakers. The bass improved.
Pros: Great Speakers.
Cons: No issues
Speakers sound decent. I expected a little more. Wife is happy so I guess thats all that matters.
Cons: Bracket was a pain to install.
Great sound and easy to install in the rear of my 1998 Jeep Cherokee
Pros: Great sound. Easy install. Not expensive. Crutchfield is always a great way to buy stereo equipment.
Great speaker. love the sound. Sounds even better with an amp attached. great quality best alround speacker for the price.
Pros: Price. quality. Highs and lows both work well. Speaker sounds amazing.
Cons: As of today nothing i can think of.
These speakers did exactly what I hoped they would do - clean up the sound from my factory stereo, and utilize it to the fullest potential. I upgraded the front door speakers on my truck ('06 Ram Quad Cab) first, with the 6x9 version of these speakers. If I were to do it again, I'd replace all 4 speakers at the same time. These 6.5" speakers fit in the factory opening in the door, but I had to drill some holes as the factory screw locations did not match these new speakers. Another note - my truck was wired with the rear speakers out of phase with the front, so I had to swap the polarity on the rear speaker wires. A pretty common thing to happen on the 02-08 Rams, I hear. I elected to swap the polarity on the Crutchfield-supplied speaker wire adapters, as that was much easier to access and modify than the wiring in the door pillars. As for the sound of these speakers - the high notes are a little bright with the factory stereo, just like with the 6x9s. I suspect the factory stereo uses an exaggerated treble curve to compensate for the factory paper woofer's lack of high frequency response. The sound from these speakers are what you can expect out of a 6.5" speaker - not very deep bass, but the bass that's there is clear and tight. Mid tones are great, too. Not muddy at all. These speakers complement the 6x9s up front very well. Good balanced sound and it no longer feels like you've got cotton in your ears with these speakers. I was amazed at the difference!
Pros: Great clear sound for the money. Makes good use of the factory stereo's power output. Crisp highs, clear mid tones, tight mid-bass. Crutchfield supplies wire adapters to fit the factory wiring. Would sound even better with a good aftermarket deck - a great incremental upgrade for those of us who have to upgrade in stages.
Cons: Had to drill holes to mount in my '06 Ram's rear doors - not a big deal in my opinion. The sound out of these speakers was so good that I finally realized that my truck had the rear speakers wired out-of-phase from the front. Once switched, all 4 speakers worked together instead against each other. Odd, because I never noticed the out-of-phase problem with the factory speakers - probably because I couldn't hear them very well.
I have a Chevy Avalanche and my old speakers were cracked and rattling. Crutchfield provided everything I needed and then more. The rear speakers fit right into the old speaker holes. It came with adapters so you just had to plug it in. The installation only took an hour to do all 4 speakers including taking the door panels off.
Pros: The sound is very crisp and the bass is pretty good with my stock headunit. It would be a lot better if I had a new headunit.
Cons: None at this time.
I installed these in a 2011 Sierra after the OEM's stopped working. I couldn't believe the improvement in sound. Even with the stock head unit these sound great and are much louder and clearer than the originals. I'm glad I purchased these and have zero regrets. You might find them cheaper someplace else but you will not get the customer service and support like Crutchfield gives.
Pros: Quality Price Includes brackets and connectors
Cons: None that I can think of
Put a pair of these speakers in my wife's 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara for the roll bar. There is a night and day difference. The sound is awesome and you can hear more range than the stock speakers. I would recommend these to anyone that wants better sound in their Jeep.
Pros: Great sound and stock look when you re-use the stock speaker grills.
Cons: The speaker adapter bracket was a little difficult to get to fit but it worked out just fine.
The Kicker 40CS654 speakers sounds very good. They beat the factory speakers hands-down and came with the wires that hooked into the factory connector. They are not going to thump, but I can feel the base. These were factory replacements in my 2004 C240 which is going to my daughter. I was disappointed in the free mounting brackets (Crutchfield) as I was forced to drill holes to get them to line up with the mounts in the doors, but it was possible without too much trouble and... they were free. Note: I have separate tweeters in the doors. These definitely do the job of upgrading the factory speakers on a budget. Also please note that I am not an audiophile, if I was, my budget would have been 10x.
Pros: Price... seriously, if you pay any less, you're going to get a tin can.
Cons: Don't expect to feel the bass in your chest.. but they can rattle the sunglasses in the map pocket.
The speakers sound great
Pros: Good quality
Excellent upgrade from the factory speakers. I was missing the highs and these speakers filled the need perfect. I am very please with the purchase and I highly recommend these speakers to anyone.
Pros: clear sound and price!
The speakers have a very nice clean full sound.
Less bass than factory Chevy Traverse, but better highs. Factory stereo doesn't seem to have enough power to push them.. Also, mounting adapter supplied doesn't work with rear configuration without modifications
Crisp sound with the perfect amount of bass when adjusted properly.
Kicker 40CS654 speakers indeed, are no doubt, great speakers for the price. Of course, there are better, more expensive speakers out there, component style, etc, however, Kicker has been manufacturing pretty darn good stuff. Specifically speaking, the 40CS654's sound great either with your factory radio or afternarket. Overall, clarity is pretty good and absolutely perfect for upgrading factory speakers. Along side it all, apply dynamat inside all your doors and these babies really work awesome.
Pros: Great price, Kicker Clear quality.
Cons: Install Hardware a little on the down grade.
Good speakers for the price.
Product came quickly with all required hardware. Decent all round sound and price is right.
The speakers sound great. Not boomy at all like some reviews claim. Great sound at any price, let alone the uber cheap $50 a pair I paid.
Pros: Price, clarity.
Speakers rattle. Mounting hardware is a little cheesy...
Pros: Good sound
Cons: Speakers rattle, could be mounting haedware
Got these hooked up to a 60RMS x 4 for 240 RMS full. I Listen to hip hop. That's about it. No bass. Absolutely none. I had a pair of Alpines2 a JVC DVD player. They hit bass like subwoofers. Mid played perfect. Highs just as good as the subs. I'm not really sure what these Kickers are. The paper door speakers advertised as 15W 4 ohms had better base. There wasn't much but it did sound better. The highs not so much. These Kickers sound like there's a fork in them. All of the rave reviews leave me to question. I only purchased them because of the reviews. I would've spent more for Alpines. I'm disappointed.
Pros: There loud I guess? Maybe for country and rock and roll. I don't know? Vocals are alright.
Cons: >No bass. None. >Mids. Where?
Speakers fit, sound fine. Hookup was easy
Pros: Speakers fit, sound fine. Hookup was easy.
Cons: Seated pretty good but not perfect. Needed to drill new holes
Love it ?? sounds great
Pros: Perfect fit
Speakers have great clarity. Huge improvement over stock speakers. Installed in a 2006 Chevy without any problems.
Great products great people. Was originally going to get a 5 1/4 front speakers for my truck . When I called to order the specalists advises me I could do I 6 1/2 that they would fit my truck and I would get a better sound. He was right I'm glade he advised me to get the 6 1/2's. Friendly service, and they answer all your questions.
Pros: Great product fits in good. Good quality sound great upgrade from stock!
Cons: Had to redrill one one hole inorder to fit two of th holes on the truck.
These speakers produce a clean, well-balanced sound are are a great price. With an aftermarket head unit to provide the power they need (as opposed to a factory head unit) they are wonderful and responsive. I highly recommend these.
Pros: Great price, excellent sound quality.
Cons: Outer ring tabs cause some fitting issues in Civics, but fit well in most Hondas.
I recently installed four of these in my 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with factory head unit and they made a huge difference. Now, that being said, if you're looking for bass that is going to blow out your back window, you're going to need a powered sub and aftermarket head unit, in my opinion. As far as getting decent quality sound, these definitely work well.
Pros: Good sound at a decent price.
Cons: None that actually pertain to this particular product. The adapter brackets that Crutchfield included were a little finicky though.
For 2009 Chevy Colorado Extended Cab. Installed them in both the forward and rear doors to replace the OEM speakers. 180 degree difference in sound. Happy with the purchase.
Pros: Crisp sound.
Cons: None at this time.
Speakers are great and last very well. Bought a set for my truck and the sounds quality is dramatically better than stock speakers. These speakers have some bass in them too, even make doors rattle (without amplifier). Would recommend these to anyone. I blast music on these and these still sound very well.
Pros: Nice sound, very durable, and easy to install and fit in many models.
Factory speakers went up on my 2002 Tahoe. These were perfect fit and did not need any modification. Sounds better then when it was new. Extra installation components made installing a breeze. Love Crutchfield......
Pros: Very easy installation, sounds great, excellent value
These speakers are really small and barely emit any respectable sound. I tested them and decided to put the sticks back in because those were louder.
Cons: Barely audible
All aspects of the purchase were good: cost, shipping and ease of installation. Found I did not need the adapter plates for my vehicle...very happy with the speakers
Pros: cost, speed of shipping, ease of installation
Pros: Fits great sounds great
Cons: No cons
I think these speakers sound great for lower end speakers. Used them as a factory replacement in my in-laws 93 Honda Accord. They feel like they are rocking now....LOL
Pros: sturdy/well made
Nice sound over stock speakers. Can't wait to hook up my amp and see how they sound
Pros: Easy install
I had to replace the OEM rear side panel speakers in my 2004 GTO because one of them was blown. I decided on the Kicker 40CS654s because of the price and solid reviews on Crutchfield's site. The instructions to remove and install my new speakers were spot on for the most part. It took me about an hour and half to do both sides. The wiring harness fit great as well as new Kicker speakers. These speakers look and sound great. Much better sounding and looking than the OEM ones. Although I still have a stock radio and stock speakers, except for these new Kickers, they definitely add more of a punch when listening to my music. Overall these were a great value and definitely will be buying from Crutchfield again.
Pros: Easy to install Very affordable Kicker brand Sound great
My 2007 GMC speakers went out, I put these in and should have done so 8 years ago- they are a big improvement over the stock speakers at a reasonable price and the free installation components made it more if a great value.
Pros: Sound quality, free wire harnesses and mounts.
Cons: None that I have found, except maybe the neighbors don't care for them :-)
The speakers have great sound easy to install I love them don't even have to crank my radio past half for good sound
Pros: Great easy to install
speakers sound great, very pleased with the kickers... sound a lot better than previous fosgates
Pros: great sound
Cons: had minor adjustments needed made to door panel
Great speakers for the money
Pros: Sound great
Great sounding speakers. Bought these because they were in sale to put in my work truck, but was really surprised how good they sound even hooked up to the 14 year old factory radio! Finally got some sound back in my ride.
Recommended by Crutchfield staff after I sent an email asking for assistance in choosing speakers for my truck, '02 Chevy Avalanche Z66. Good fit and I didn't need the speaker brackets. The factory speakers were blown; these were installed in the rear door. I wasn't able to buy the front component speakers and the rear at the same time so I ordered these first. These speakers sound great through the factory radio; I could play the radio with these speakers alone so I can't wait to get the front speakers. Music sounds clean, has a good bass level, and can turn it up without distortion. So if your looking for better sound or are upgrading your factory speakers and not trying to out do the 16 year old kid next door, these are perfect.
Pros: Great sound, good fit, reasonably priced.
Cons: None yet.
I bought a set for both my ram and wrangler. The free adapter for the ram made it a snap to install and the ones in the wrangler fit right in.
Pros: Good looking speaker for the price.
I installed these in a 2014 Ram 1500 and were an excellent upgrade over the stock speakers.
Pros: Good sound quality VS stock speakers Easy installation Perfect fit in stock location
Cons: None at this time
I was going to give these 4 stars, because they didn't quite live up to my expectations. I was hoping to get a little more bass out of them, but honestly my expectations were a little high, and misguided, especially for the little amount of money I was spending for these speakers. They really are a good bang for your buck. I've had them installed for a week now to replace my stock speakers in my 2000 Tacoma. Obviously the sound quality is significantly improved, and if I want that "bump" I was initially hoping for I can just add a little sub in the mix and be good to go. Very happy with my purchase.
Good choice if you're trying to do a cheap upgrade as I was. The Kickers provide more clarity than my factory speakers especially in the higher ranges. They do provide less bass than I was expecting but I don't have an amp hooked to them (yet), I'm using an aftermarket pioneer receiver. Overall a pretty good value for the price. The instructions provided with the free brackets were slightly confusing and it turns out I did not need them, the quick connect adapters were nice though.
Pros: Cheap, decent sound.
Cons: Less bass than expected.
Install went well, supplied brackets fit with minor modification. Previous posts were correct regarding these being a small 6.5 inch speaker. While lows are somewhat lacking, mid and highs are clearer than stock infinity speakers. The mix of stock in dash and the kickers in the roll bar area take away the muffled sound for the upper tonal ranges. Factory sub was replaced with a pioneer, which provided a thighter punch.
Pros: Clean sound, easy install. Bought on sale happy with the mix as noted above.
Cons: Lows lacking but might pick up a little with some more exercise.
replaced my stock speakers in a 08 Silverado with the Kicker 40CS654 and they sound amazing! Very crisp highs and deep bass for a 6 1/2s highly recommend for OEM replacements.
Pros: Crips Highs and deep bass
Cons: none I can think of at the moment
Quick and easy upgrade to the stock stereo. Nice clear sound at a good price.
Pros: Sounds Much better than the stock speakers.
Cons: A little disappointed in the low base. Wish I spent a bit more mone on a better speaker.
